Excerpt: This unit is excellent and has more features than I realized when I bought it. Setup was simple and it is mostly intuitive to use. The menu system requires some getting use to and a call to tech support was useful to decode the menu system. Tech support is fast and accurate.
Summary: This unit works great, is easy to use, has an input for my turntable, an optical input for my TV, RCA jacks for all my other old Onkyo decks and players. The FM tuner is greatly improved over my 30 year Onkyo Receiver that this unit replaces.
Summary: Very clean and smooth sounding receiver. Has all technology for ipods, wifi, satalite radio and yet can still hook up a turn table. When using A and B speaker output you do mot staver the reciever for power like many other recievers when both outputs are used.
Summary: I'm a few mouths into this stereo receiver and I must say it's a pretty nice sounding unit. At first, I wasn't overly impressed but still sounded great. I decided to pick up a pair of Polk Audio Monitor 40 Series II speakers. Very nice!
Pros: If you're looking for nice sound to play through your computer this unit works well! With some EQ magic and a few plugins, one can get a nice sweet sound! But as said above I love my Sansui AU-717.
Cons: Only thing I didn't like about this unit was the USB Flash Drive. Although it works just perfect, it does lack many features! No Replaygain or Gapless playback. Not a big deal for me as I use my computer for all my music. Using ASIO works well for those that wish to use the hardware directly (sou...
Summary: Only a couple of weeks experience with this Onkyo TX-8050 receiver, but so far extremely satisfied with every aspect of the performance. Easy to setup, and sounds great in the environment where it is located. Controls are straight forward and simple to use.
Pros: Good price. Easy to figure out connections, great modern looks, and simple to use controls.
Cons: I have to agree with reviewer Jay L. Virginia when it comes to the instruction manual and user guide. Onkyo has provided very poorly written and difficult to easily understand directions and descriptions of the various aspects of setting up and operating this system.
Excerpt: Replaced my old NAD receiver with this one. For a basic two channel setup for listening to classical music it works very well. There are plenty of hookups, including one for a phono/turntable, which is rare nowadays. Everything sounds clean and clear on my KEF speakers, plenty of power.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Great choice, I have this hooked up to push 3-sets of Polk audio ceiling speakers thru out the house and the sound is extremely clear. I installed the UWF-I and listen to Sirius XM via wireless internet connection and it works great, nice that it is Sirius ready, plus Pandora, rhapsody and much more
Pros: plenty of ports additional equipment plus ethernet and usb, clear sound.
